A blending of Electronica and Rock, the album is a collection of works from the past few months. Lots of ambient synths and guitars, big drums with rock bass lines, and with catchy vocals and accessible lyrics ranging from alien abduction to unrequited love.

Arcade Island started in 2006 in Pennsylvania out of curiosity by Alex Bew, a 21-year-old self-proclaimed nerd with "too much time on his hands". "I don't like making music in just one genre, and I don't like people telling me what to do, so I'll make whatever kind of music I want. Not even Abraham Lincoln can stop me. Although he could probably do a good job of it with his vampire skills and all."

Subject: Arcade Island - Spring EP
This is some good melodic sounding Pop Rock that has a Post Rock feel to it. Synthetic, sequenced drum beats, with distorted guitars and clear vocals which have been refined via studio production into something which comes off as very polished, Arcade Island's Spring EP sounds as though he shares a bunch of the cross influences that came from both Alternative Metal & the New Romantics of the 80's. The Spring EP is a really well done production. I feel like I have to give this five stars for the high quality it has.
